Vintage wedding...

My best friend posted this to her facebook the other day and I was torn between cracking up and cringing. And no, I'm not the bride but I'm next to her...did you find me yet?
It was January 1986 and I have to admit we did a dang fine job on the wedding for as little as we all had to spend back then. The dresses were made by Sabrina's (the chick to the right of the bride) grandmother. We wore them in her wedding too. Ann and I spent several evening gathering up the skirt and adding little floral accents to them so they wouldn't be "exactly" the same (in our minds) and then to change the look a little more we wore the sleeves pushed up. Ahh the 80's At least we didn't have "mall bangs"!
I remember sitting in Ann's living room the morning of her wedding sewing her veil. It was down to the wire ladies! But we managed to pull it off! I don't remember much about the wedding. It was held at her family's church in our tiny hometown and the reception was at City Hall. We decorated it with crepe paper and ate off of paper plates. No fancy schmancy catered event, just a "hometown weddin".
Ann and Robert just celebrated 24 years of marriage in January and not a single person could tell you what their cake tasted like, what designer they wore (none) or who caught the bouquet, but anyone that knows them knows they are still in love and they are a great team. THAT my friends is what matters. Happy Belated Anniversary Ann and Rob.
Oh yeah, And I guarantee you I never wore that dress again. We all hated them but it was what we could afford so we worked with it.

Hot stuff!

Arlington Texas Goodwill

I was in the Goodwill store a couple of days ago and they have a beautiful white David's Bridal size 20 wedding dress available. It was in a dress bag but from what I could see it has a fairly full tulle skirt and the bodice is a larger floral lace pattern. It had cap sleeves, I couldn't see if it had a train but it looked like it was in great shape.
I couldn't find a price tag on it but the gentleman said the wedding dresses are usually $40-$70ish. It was closing time so I didn't want to bother him too much and I haven't had time to drop by again to get more info on it. He said their location has been receiving quite a few wedding dresses in the last few months.
I have seen wedding dresses at the other Goodwill store locations when I was buying up china plates for my wedding but they were usually from the 70's and 80's. It was nice to see a more current dress style in a normal size that is just waiting to make some bride's day.
Go and check it out!

Just wanted to thank all of you who voted for Radney Foster's Angel Flight. It made the charts last week at #17 and this week made it up to #9!!! Let's keep voting for it and see if we can help raise even more money for the Texas Air National Guard Family Support Foundation.

Oh, and for you Hootie fans out there I copied this little nugget of trivia from here.

"Darius Rucker lends his distinctive harmony on "Angel Flight," a moving tribute to the pilots who fly their fallen brethen home to their final resting places. Radney's co-writer, Darden Smith, started writing the song after talking to a pilot of the Texas Air National Guard who mentioned he flew the "angel flight." Smith asked Radney to finish the song with him, and the pair are donating proceeds from the song to a charity that provides assistance to military families beset by tragedy. "
